Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
A fundraising event for Question of Power, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating visual voices for individuals, families, and communities affected by the extraction, production, and consumption of coal, will take place on Friday, November 9, 2012, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM at Phil Space Gallery, 1410 Second Street, Santa Fe, NM. A suggested donation of $15 at the door will support the work of Question of Power.
The fundraiser, which includes a green chili supper, a silent auction, and live music, will feature a photography exhibit of work by Carlan Tapp, documentary photographer and educator and founder of Question of Power. Tapp’s silver print photographs include work from mining and fly ash disposal sites in the Navajo Nation, Tennessee, Alabama, and Oklahoma.
The exhibit will also include photographs by participants in Question of Power’s May 2012 workshop, who explored the rich culture of the Navajo People by visiting homes and sacred sites in the Navajo Nation and hearing first-hand about the impact of coal mining on Navajo lives and culture. Some of the people behind the stories told by these and Tapp’s photographs will attend the opening reception as special guests.
The silent auction features photography-related items, including a workshop of one’s choice at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops.
The photography exhibit runs from November 9 to 19, 2012 at Phil Space Gallery, 1410 Second Street, Santa Fe, NM.
